About Stonewall

This year, Stonewall is celebrating its 25th Anniversary as a leading organisation campaigning for equality & fair treatment for lesbian, gay and bisexual people worldwide.

 

Thanks to our supporters, we’ve been able to achieve so much over the past 25 years, from helping to repeal section 28 to championing Equal Marriage in Britain but sadly we still have so much to do:

 

section28

  • One in six lesbian, gay and bisexual people have been a victim of hate crime over the last three years

 

  • Homophobic bullying continues to be widespread in Britain’s schools. More than half (55 per cent) of lesbian, gay and bisexual pupils have experienced direct bullying

 

  • One in five lesbian, gay and bisexual employees have experienced verbal bullying from colleagues, customers or service users because of their sexual orientation in the last five years

 

 

Today our fight to tackle homophobia is no less vital than when we started…

 

prideBy joining us on the Equality Walk your support will go a long way towards helping us achieve our vision of a Britain where one day every lesbian, gay and bisexual person will not only be entitled to fair treatment and respect but will be afforded fair treatment and respect – at home, at school and at work.
